Projects in this category are autonomous machines engineered and programmed by the student from their own concepts and designs, or published drawings/kits.
Devices controlled through direct, real time remote control by the student are not appropriate (ie: remote controlled cars). Once started, the robotics project should operate as a standalone independent machine without human interaction.
Examples of commercially available robotics kits are Lego, K'Nex, Capsella, VEX, and Technics. Student engineered robot designs and concepts are encouraged.
